What To Expect

Visit Chicago's highest point, the Skydeck on the 103rd floor of the Willis Tower (formerly known as the Sears Tower) with this pre-paid admission ticket. Enjoy panoramic views of the Chicago skyline, world-famous for its distinctive architecture.

Explore several exhibits designed for learners of all ages, like interactive digital floor displays, touch-screen activities and scavenger hunts that not only highlight Chicago's iconic landmark, but also celebrate the Windy City's sports, architecture, pop culture, history, food, music and people. Challenge yourself with a Chicago trivia game, compare the heights of the tallest structures in the world, and see just how many of your bodies it would take to reach the height of Willis Tower.

Walk out onto the Ledge, a glass box-like balcony that extends 4.3 feet (1.3 meters) from the building, and experience an unconventional view of the city — from above. Admire the lofty views of top Chicago attractions, like Wrigley Field, the Navy Pier and Millennium Park, all from a breathtaking height of 1,353 feet (412.4 meters). On a clear day, you can see up to 50 miles (80.5 km) out. It’s also the perfect vantage point for great sunset and twinkling night city views.

Traveler Tips

All though 60 seconds isn't enough time if you are in big group, its just right for a couple to do.
Stepping out on the deck is not for the faint of heart, if you are afraid of heights you may hyperventilate.
Long queues in general line, poor assistance from staff— recommend Fast Track especially if you have mobility issues or back problems

The whole building was amazing, the ride up the ride down. The city views were amazing. The only thing I would want to be better is more time to be there, and not so much money on the photos.

Sky deck at The Ledge
Ana_H, May 2023
When I purchased the tickets it said “skip the line.” Not true they are $30- for $44- I feel we got ripped off! Not happy with this tour.
Thanks for a great time.

Gloria_C, May 2023
We as family had a great time. Noticed some changes from the last time I visited Willis Tower. It was a very nice experience.
Cost more! Go directly to Willis tower
Lisa_M, Mar 2023
Buy your tix directly from Willis tour. This website cost me more to bring my family. Little disappointing I didn’t do more research. Will Never book with this company again/ there was no extra value or benfits.

Great Views, Long Lines
Matt_M, Mar 2023
Great experience, but very long lines to wait in. Especially, for a Tuesday night. Glad I went, but once is enough. Be prepared to stand in lines for about an hour, in order to stand on the glass-floored deck for 60 seconds.
Ligia_A, Mar 2023
The view is Amazing and all the story before getting to the ledge makes the experience unique. Pictures came out really good and the personal assisting the visitors are niece and helpful!!
Breathing views!!
Harish_I, Feb 2023
The tour itself takes you through the history of Chicago and the highlight definitely is the skydeck. The view from the 103rd floor is exhilarating and the night view sets a romantic atmosphere
Last minute trip
BainTravel, Dec 2022
The museum to The Ledge was a value added to the experience of looking down from 103 floors up. It was an amazing experience.
Spectacular Chicago view
Janet_F, Dec 2022
What an awesome view. Definitely recommend this on your trip to Chicago. Amazing tour. Our teens enjoyed this tour also.

Sabino_G, Nov 2022

Sandra_S, Nov 2022
Great experience totally recommend it for the whole family ❤️ It’s always best to get ur tickets in advance no wait @all
Not happy with non refundable
Alicea_S, Nov 2022
Our group arrived and realized there would be zero visibility due to the weather. Some were able to get refunded but two of us had bought our tickets through a third party and couldn’t get a refund. I wish they would change policy on that. I recommend the experience of visiting Skydeck, not the experience of buying through a third party.

The walk before the elevator is very good but the views from up top are fabulous. Photos are a bit expensive.

Was there in 1974 , grand opening. It’s been like 40 years since then that I was there. This time the amazement is just as good as in 1974.

Denise_S, Sep 2022
I had a group of seven of us coming from California with a delayed flight. Tried to reschedule our sky deck adventure and was unable to do so and lost money on all seven tickets.
So that’s what 1300+ feet up looks like to a bird.
Andrew_D, Nov 2021
Last time we were in Chicago we didn’t get to the Skydeck. We made arrangements via Viator and were rewarded with fantastic night views.
Darrian_S, Jul 2020
Exhilarating! If you’re looking for a bit of a “controlled” rush, this is it. I can’t think of a better view of The City of Chicago!
My Best pre Birthday experience Ever
Donnie_N, Jul 2020
From start to finish Everyone was so welcoming and very kind with outstanding professionalism. The entire Experience was exciting as and bs fun. I will admit I was nervous once we reached the top,, but the staff was very helpful in making me feel safe and comfortable.
Carmen_M, Jul 2020
Was super excited first time for me and my friends and the experience was super good, and also the employees.
Wonderful Experience
Joanna_K, Jul 2020
They did a great job coordinating the flow of people due to the current pandemic of COVID-19. Very fun experience
Skydeck experience
